You, like most people, would likely agree that driving involves much responsibility and concentration. You sit inside your vehicle and zoom around town at various speeds, but nothing should go wrong when you stop at a red light, right? Unfortunately, for a group of people from Montgomery County, the “safest” time to be in a car proved to be a fatal one.
Demise at a Light
According to Montgomery County, Texas police, an SUV carrying four people was stopped at a light when a Dodge 3500 pickup truck, driven by a 27-year-old man, rear-ended it at high speed during the early morning hours of April 27th. The force of the impact was so strong that it crushed the SUV and flipped it over while the pickup truck smashed into a utility pole. A 24-year-old woman died at the scene while a 65-year-old man and their two teenagers were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
The 27-year-old was allegedly intoxicated and fled the scene of the crash but was caught after he checked into a Conroe hospital with a broken arm. Police charged him with intoxication manslaughter, intoxication assault with a vehicle causing serious injury, two counts of aggravated assault and failure to stop and render aid.
